Creative destruction of medicine: The impact of Wearables on the medical profession

Over the last years a new category of devices has emerged. Wearables allow for the continuous tracking of bio-signals.

While this kind of data is attractive for private users, it seems to offer new possibilities for the medical profession.

This thesis explores the potential of this kind of data to transform the current way healthcare is delivered.
